Clyde May's Straight Rye, 47%

Price: $45 Issue: Spring 2019 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

Generous proof and just 3 years of age mean this is no wallflower whiskey. Peppermint, white flowers, leather, and Pine-Sol aromas turn gingery on the palate, revealing bold rye spice, root beer, licorice, cinnamon sticks, and pine boughs. Good intensity, if a touch brash.
